Devotional: Amos the Shepherd Prophet

Heritage Presbyterian Church

Scripture – Amos 5: 6-7, 10-15

Theme: When God told Amos to go north to Israel and to prophesy to everyone there, including the King, most people must have been shocked! Amos was a shepherd, and shepherds were considered thieves and liars. Yet Amos did exactly as the Lord directed him. Often the Lord uses whomever he wants to use…and we are often surprised when that happens!
